Signatures too big and confusing

Hi guys,

I'm new to this Forum but have been a member in other Forums for years.

Those Forums usually have rules about the size of the pictures you can add to your signature (150 H x 500 W). I find it very difficult to read threads with a lot of short answers with all those big pictures in between. I don't know if it's just me but sometimes I don't see answers between all those, sometimes HUGE (!!) pictures.

It's just an idea

Agree to disagree. I like looking at people's big siggie pictures, a lot of them make me go "Aw!' out loud.

I like mine and others I've seen. They're cute, and it's hard to see the small ones.

They could still make you go "Awww" if they are smaller

Besides that everybody can post bigger pictures of his dog in a seperate thread. It was just an idea

@MicheleKC87: They are very cute I agree! But it takes a while for them to load and I find it very destructive inbetween answers even though it's cute.

I actually kind of agree. I like that this forum doesn't have enforced limits on signature size, but it would be nice if some of the taller ones weren't stacked so high. I don't want to hide sigs because I really like seeing everybody's pics, but some moderation in vertical size would be nice.

I have been considering changing the size of my sig, but it takes a lot of technical stuff and I am not so strong on those kinds of things. But, I also find it a bit difficult to take criticism about forum issues from someone who has only posted and visited a few times.

So somebodys opinion that is new to the Forum is worth less than somebodys that has over 3000 posts?

I don't think she meant that, I just think she meant it's a little... forward for a brand new member to jump on the board and start requesting people change their siggies. I too was a little surprised that that was one of your first posts. I like your siggie, btw! Your labs are pretty.
